The Sweetest Season

Harvard's 35-3 demolition of Yale at the Stadium on November 20 was the crowning moment in a football season of peak performances: a perfect 10-0 record; high-scoring offense through the air and on the ground; determined if sometimes under-acknowledged defense (witness the devastating end-zone interception of a crucial Yale pass, run back 100 yards for a touchdown by Ricky Williamson '05); and the seniors' sweet satisfaction at defeating the Elis for the fourth consecutive time, a feat last accomplished from 1919 to 1922.
